Chinatown Sam Peng Yaowarat Wholesale Market
If you are going to Pratunam Market or Chatuchak Market, then you should start venture to other wholesale markets. For instance, you can try Chinatown Sam Peng or also known as Yaowarat Wholesale Market or you can read our Five Wholesale Markets in Bangkok story.
Chinatown is not about food only and there is a wholesale market hidden behind the food and jewellery shops. You might enjoyed many delicious food in Chinatown and what you missed is probably one of the hidden gems of wholesale market shopping in Bangkok.
It is a long stretch of wholesale market of stalls and shops at Yaowarat Road and Sam Peng Lane so that’s how you get both names in the same market. The market is not located on the main road of Chinatown Bangkok and we have attached the exact GPS location below so it is easier for you to locate the market.
The Sam Peng Yaowarat Wholesale Market is not as big as Pratunam or Chatuchak as it is only one lane. There are sections of the wholesale market and you will know when you are there.
The lane is narrow and it is packed. It is usually patronized by locals but now there are many tourists too.
It is an outdoor market and there are sections of the wholesale market selling different items. You can find clothing, fabrics, jewellery, accessories and many more at this wholesale market.
Food stalls are everywhere within the market like Pratunam Wholesale Market.
Ladies will love this market as there are many accessories such as earrings and bracelets here and the items here are cheap. Since it is a wholesale market so most items are sold in bulk of three or six at wholesale prices.
Expect to spend at least a few hours just venturing and shopping. The problem is you need to take a taxi here but you won’t regret coming. Remember to bring cash as most places accept cash only. We are not sure about price bargaining as most of the items are pretty cheap.
Bring your own shopping bag so you can put it in your bag. The lanes and alleys are narrow so it could be hot and stuffy during hot days.
The best way to come here is by taxi and just tell them you want to visit the Sam Peng or Yaowarat Wholesale Market, they will know the way.
